Green Lantern

So the furvor over Ryan Reynolds playing Hal Jordan in the upcoming Green Lantern movie is growing, apparently.

I don't know.. I've never been a big Green Lantern fan...and with the glut of machismo, emo-ified(spiderman3, christian bale in thedark knight?)heroes..or reboots/mild continuations of classics, such as Superman... I'm kind of surprised DC didn't go with Wonder Woman.

Done right, it could be an amazing blockbuster about many things.. especially if it avoided the feminist BS and PC-sensitivity that seems to be everywhere in any movie with a "strong female protagonist"... if nothing else, really, given the background of Wonder Woman.. the movie could easily have storyline included about the redemption of men(not mankind, but men) and at least slay some of the misandry that's passed about without even a half-thought, let alone criticism.

Anyhow.. they're going with Green Lantern.. and we'll see if the CG stands up to fanboy dreams and box-office expectations.

  1. I only want a Wonder Woman movie if it's true to the character and done right, otherwise they need to leave Diana alone!

  2. Well exactly! But, hollywood being what it is.. no point holding our collective breath. But there's always hope.
